Pattern frustration at Jo-Ann's

Postby peacechick » June 22nd, 2017, 11:17 am

Is it just me or does anyone else's local Jo-Ann store seem to be lax at restocking patterns? I had been trying to purchase three Kwik-Sew patterns for months and finally gave up trying at Jo-Ann's. Hancock (at least the ones near me) was always great at keeping the pattern cabinets stocked. As luck would have it, I got an email about a $1.99 Kwik-Sew sale through June 24, so I was able to order the patterns I wanted directly from them. https://kwiksew.mccall.com/

Vanessa, my impression of JoAnn's is probably not admired by anyone, so I will hush!!

I hear you, Jerry. I'll go there for basic supplies I can't get at one of the local quilt shops, especially if I can use a 40-50% off coupon (can't beat their price on batting). For fabric, especially, I usually buy online or from one of the several quilt shops in town. Plus, I have found some really great fabrics at estate sales. Like I said, my local JoAnn's has always been HORRIBLE at keeping patterns in stock; I almost always found the patterns I wanted at Hancock's, but it's hit and miss at best at JoAnn's. And it's not that I buy that many patterns anymore; most of the time I'm only looking for a single pattern--two at most. I've got a HUGE stash and can usually adapt something I already have rather than buy something new. The Kwik-Sew patterns were the exception.
